Center for Behavior Analysis
Group Contingency Management in Methadone Treatment
This is a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Behavior Therapy Development grant to develop a contingency management intervention for group therapy. Pilot studies are evaluating the 1) feasibility of targeting multiple behaviors in a group treatment format, and 2) reducing the urine monitoring schedule for treatment groups without significantly reducing the efficacy of the intervention. The ultimate goal of this project is development of new models of contingency management that are more acceptable to counselors by moving implementation of the intervention to group settings, reducing urinalysis costs, and targeting multiple behaviors.
